General annotation (Comments)

Function

Regulator of mitochondrial ribosome biogenesis and translation. Binds to mitochondrial ribosomal RNAs 16S, 12S and 7S By similarity. Targets NSUN4 RNA methyltransferase to the mitochondrial large ribosomal subunit. Ref.3

Subunit structure

Heterodimer with NSUN4; this interaction may be required for NSUN4 recruitment to the mitochondrial large ribosomal subunit By similarity.

Subcellular location

Mitochondrion Ref.3.

Tissue specificity

Widely expressed, with highest levels in liver, followed by testis, kidney and brain. Ref.3

Domain

The MTERF repeats form a half-donut shaped, right-handed superhelix, where the concave side displays a positively charged path for nucleic acid interaction By similarity.

Disruption phenotype

Ablation of the gene is not viable. At 8.5 dpc, mutant homozygous embryos exhibit much reduced size, lack of heart and no optic disks. Conditional knockout in heart leads to severe mitochondrial cardiomyopathy. Premature death occurs at about 21 weeks and decreased body weight is observed from 15 weeks until death. Ref.3

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the mTERF family.

Sequence caution

The sequence AAH02280.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Erroneous initiation. Translation N-terminally extended.

The sequence AAH55877.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Erroneous initiation. Translation N-terminally extended.
